    • Chester Cahow was transported to Randall's Island by Deputy Sheriff Fred W. Clark on Sunday, May 23rd 1926. Chester was about 16 at this time. Chester was committed to Randall's Island by Judge P.F. Scripture after a conviction on Children's Court. He was previously detained at "Industry" and was on parole when he entered a feed store in Waterville. Chester was convicted of larceny, having broken into Congers Feed Store in Waterville, New York. Chester stole $20 from a cash drawer. Chester had the distinction of being the firt person to spend the night in the new Utica Court House jail cell. Randall's island was described as: "In the 19th century, Randall's Island became home to an orphanage, poor house, burial ground for the poor, idiot asylum, homeopathic hospital and rest home for Civil War veterans. It was also site of the New York House of Refuge, a reform school completed in 1854 for juvenile delinquents or juveniles adjudicated as vagrants."

      Chester Cahow was arrested on or about December 12 1929 for the theft of an automobile battery. He was, at the time, on probation and, as a result, faced a three year sentence. Chester was 19 at this time. The December 12, 1929 Waterville Tomes Newspaper article references that Chester has been "in several other escapades" was detained by Bert Regan. The battery was the property of Robert Ryan and was taken near the property of Orrin Terry.
